Domaine Dujac 2017 "Folatieres" Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru, Burgundy, France

Farming: Organic

Name of Winemaker/Chef du Cave:  Jeremy Seysses

Grape Varieties: Chardonnay

Terroir:  The Les Folatières vineyard sits between 250 meters to 300 meters of elevation on clay and limestone soils. The vines range in ages with the oldest being 30 years old. 

Vinification/Oak Usage: Tank fermentation.

Aging: 100% new French Oak

Tasting Notes: Medium bodied and age worthy, the 2017 Folatières is energetic and bright. Tart pears, rich citrus and intense white flowers are underscored by taut acidity and subtle hints of nuttiness. A delicious and drinkable White Burgundy that can be enjoyed now or cellared. 

History of the Domaine:

Domaine Dujac is one of Burgundy's most famous estates. Simply put: the wines are highly collectible and very delicious. Jacques Seysses founded Domaine Dujac at the tender age of 26. Fresh off of apprenticeships at Gérard Potel and Domaine de la Pousse d’Or, and Jacques purchased 4.5HA of land in Morey-Saint-Denis in 1967. Not having inherited these vines, he named the domaine after himself: Domaine du 'Jac' (his nickname). By the late '70s, Jacques was attracting intern talent ranging from Ted Lemon of Littorai to Jean-Pierre de Smet, former owner and winemaker of Domaine de l`Arlot. Over time, Jacques continued to acquire more vines in some of Burdgundy's most esteemed plots--Echezeaux, Bonnes Mares, Clos de la Roche, Romanee St-Vivant, and more. Jacques has now gone into semi-retirement, and the day-to-day operations are overseen by his very capable and equally passionate son, Jeremy, and his wife Diana. Today, the ideologies of biodynamic farming and minimal destemming are at the forefront, as the estate uniquely focuses on a "path of soft extraction: a gentle 'infusion' rather than 'extraction'."
